The Nation’s Only Craft-Brewer Owned Cooperative
The Independent Brewers Alliance is a community of over 300 craft brewers with combined production of over 1.5-million barrels, making the IBA the second largest purchasing power in the industry. We leverage that power to save members money on raw materials and operational expenses. Savings programs currently include cans, lids, chemicals, labels, hops, hose, brewing and canning equipment, PPE, all kinds of packaging, branded glassware, apparel, kegs, cartons, freight, office supplies, design services, insurance, consulting services, payroll processing and much more.
Our staff does the negotiating with leading industry suppliers. Brewers participate only in the savings programs that are right for their brewery. And perhaps best of all, brewers can participate in most of our savings programs for FREE – no dues required. Learn more here.
The IBA is currently accepting applications from qualified craft brewers. If you want to learn more, including how much your brewery could save, or apply for membership, contact Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our easy, no-obligation member application.
What Our Brewers Say
“I can’t believe how much money we are saving through IBA! It’s unbelievable! We will definitely be looking into more of the IBA programs soon. Can’t thank you enough for what you guys do.”
– Dylan Sultzer, Brew Master, Defiance Brewing – 1,100 Barrel Brewery
“Our brewery has seen flat to declining sales and increasing costs. That’s where the IBA comes in. It’s negotiated pricing in a number of areas we could never have gotten on our own. The savings pay the cost of our membership many times over.
– Dan Barrett, Controller, Upland Brewing – 15,000 Barrel Brewery
“The IBA is saving us money on every can – money that we plow right back into our marketing program to keep our business strong and growing.”
– John Haggerty, Brew Master, Warped Wing Brewery – 8,000 Barrels
